Notes and Editorial Reviews

This 2 CD collection contains the four great symphonic poems of Richard Strauss, originally recorded in 1957 and 1958 by the most Straussian Orchestra of the time, the Dresden Staatskapelle. Originally released by Deutsche Grammophon though today frequently hard to find. Karl Bohm's approach to the music of his friend and colleague Richard Strauss is noted for an emphasis on elegance and instrumental clarity.
